Triptykon announce UK festival exclusive at Bloodstock

Bloodstock Open Air reveals a third name for August’s 2011 Festival next summer. Joining headliners Immortal – who make their UK festival debut at their only UK appearance of 2011 – and special guests Rhapsody Of Fire, Triptykon will be coming to Derbyshire for this exclusive festival appearance. Led by Hellhammer/Celtic Frost pioneer Tom G Warrior, their avant-garde mix of death, doom and black metal demands attention, and no matter how brightly the sun may be shining, you can be sure Triptykon will create a suitably gloomy atmosphere with their captivating live show.

In other news, Bloodstock Open Air this month enjoys the honour of it’s first industry award, showing how far the festival has come since it’s birth at Derby Assembly Rooms 2001. On October 7th at the Radisson Blu Portman Hotel in London, Bloodstock received the “Best Festival 15,000 -“ award, for the 10th anniversary event, which saw over 10,000 in attendance for the first time in the festival’s history. Says Festival Director Rachael Gregory:

“As an independent family run festival we’re all delighted to win this award and be recognised by the music industry for our efforts.  With 10 years behind us already and still so many awesome bands to choose from we’re really excited about what the future holds for Bloodstock and it’s fans.  We dedicate this award to all the unsigned metal bands out there who strive to make a career in an incredibly competitive industry… we hope to see plenty of you at Bloodstock  in the future.”

What’s more, Bloodstock Open Air is up for two more awards at the Virtual Festivals UK Festival Awards, with nominations in the “Best Grass Roots Festival” and “Best Festival Headline Performance (Twisted Sister)” categories. To vote for Bloodstock, click here:
